Anybody got a version of tar for Common Lisp or Rel 6??

I'm looking for some way to easily ship clusters of files to and from
Symbolics machines running Release 6 and unix boxes. If there was a
version of tar that we could get source code for (because in some
cases we need to do non-standard filename translations, for instance),
that would be an ideal solution. Does anybody have such a program, or
know of one that is publically available?
I think it should be pretty easy to modify the Symbolics Tar-tape
software to do what you want. Yes, I know you don't mean tapes,
but I don't think 'tar' does much different between tapes and files.
I don't know of the Symbolics software writes as well as reads;
the stuff we use here is a modified version with numerous bug
fixes and perhaps the writing stuff is local. If you need the
code for writing, let me know and I'll investigate the status
